During each session, a mental-health professional attaches electrodes to the participant’s scalp in order to process the client’s brainwave frequencies. The client then interacts with his or her brainwaves in the form of a video game, which the client plays in an attempt to train and self-regulate the waves. In doing so, the client is able to begin tackling issues such as anxiety, attention deficit disorder, sleep difficulties, and migraines.
At Urban Float, visitors unleash tension inside a pod-like sensory-deprivation pool that’s filled with epsom salts and skin-temperature water. In addition to launching participants into a state of meditative relaxation, the gravity-suspending experience can boost the workings of the central nervous system and the brain by blocking out stress and external stimuli, such as traffic noise or a swarm of pet parrots. Outside of the pool guests can enjoy a pre- and post-float lounge filled with comfy couches, books, magazines, and free hot tea.
